Pre-owned mobile homes for sale in Sarasota, FL are generally sold in “as-is” condition. However, the seller is required to ensure that the following items are functional on closing day: heat and air conditioning, water heater, smoke detectors, and all kitchen appliances (stove, refrigerator, dishwasher).
All pre-owned homes sold through the Cedar Cove sales team undergo termite, hurricane anchor, and thorough home inspections. These inspections allow prospective buyers to better understand the true condition of the pre-owned home they are purchasing.
Sellers are not required to address repairs discovered through inspections. Most sellers (not all) will agree to pay for termite treatments or tie down repairs, if needed.
Cedar Cove will disclose any needed repairs which come to our attention. Should the seller opt not to perform these repairs, they may be negotiated off the sales price.
New vs. Pre-Owned Homes
